Nocturne #22

Michiko Suzuki studied at Bunka School of Fashion before rising quickly to become the lead designer at Yohji Yamamoto Y’s Red Label. In 2010, Suzuki founded her own label, the name of which is derived from Chopin’s ‘night songs’. Nocturne #22 employs the sense of deconstruction she picked up from Y’s paired with a love of structure, inspired by her tailor grandfather. Suzuki’s designs are underlined by an intoxicating dark romanticism.
